Difference between a RÉSUMÉ and CV
The primary difference between a Résumé and a Curriculum Vitae is  the length, what is included and what each is used for. A résumé is a one or two page summary of your skills, experience and education. While a résumé is brief and concise - no more than a page or two, a curriculum vitae is a longer (at least two pages) and more detailed synopsis.

A curriculum vitae includes a summary of your educational and academic backgrounds as well as teaching and research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors, affiliations and other details. A curriculum vitae is used primarily when applying for academic, education, scientific or research positions. It is also applicable when applying for fellowships or grants.

Personal Statement

This is an opportunity for a prospective student to tell a school (in which they are seeking admission) about themselves. Be open. Be reflective. Find your individual voice and express it honestly. Afterall, it is a "personal" statement.
